The Joshua Center therapy services address both the needs of the individual and the needs of the family as a whole. Let’s face it: a diagnosis affects the entire family, not just the individual.

Attend IEP/504 Meetings
The Joshua Center therapists are well versed in the educational process and how difficult this may be to follow. This is why we attend IEP meetings, 504 meeting, and sit in as a member of the team to help plan for your child’s education. You will find that the Joshua Center therapists have a calm but clear approach to these meetings and are able to affect change in the school plans for these children.
School Observations
As a part of the assessment, the Joshua Center therapists come out to most schools and observe the child for up to a 2 hour time period. During this time, they will assess the child’s social skills, learning style and interactions, as well as how their symptoms are affecting their educational performance. This information can be utilized in planning the school meetings and addressing the issues presented as well as giving parents the chance to have a better understanding of their child.
